In the Shadow of Riding Mountain: Exploring the Heritage Sites of Manitoba’s Central Parkland
The area in the Shadow of the Riding Mountain – comprised of the City of Dauphin, the Towns of Gilbert Plains and Grandview, and the Rural Municipalities of Dauphin, Lawrence, Gilbert Plains and Grandview – has a great wealth of history and heritage. From the settlements of Aboriginal peoples 8,000 years ago to the explorers, the Métis and European pioneers, this area has been a centre of trade and agriculture. With the arrival of the Canadian Northern Railway in the early years of the 20th century, many more European settlers arrived, bringing a vibrant cultural heritage rich in traditional music, dance, food and faith. Many of their churches and schools, along with community museums, are yours to discover.
